Mr. Speaker, as the saying goes, “there is no there there” when it comes to tough sanctions from the government.
The Canada pension plan holds more than $1 billion worth of shares with companies linked to Burma.
The government has admitted that sanctions have a very limited impact, and merely affect future investment. The government has no way of knowing whether investments are being made in Burma.
Will the minister finally act? When will he put a stop to Canadian investments in Burma?
